Rose M. Dragon

ASHTABULA — Rose M. Dragon, age 83, died late Tuesday evening, March 26, 2013, at Silver Sands II Assisted Living Facility, where she had resided the past seven years. Mrs. Dragon had suffered with Alzheimer’s disease.

She was born Oct. 9, 1929, in Willoughby, the daughter of Andrew G. and Agnes V. (Hudak) Svec and had been a resident of Ashtabula Co. all of her life.  She was married to Joseph J. Dragon Sr. on June 10, 1950, at Our Lady of Victory Church in Andover. 

Mrs. Dragon was the bookkeeper for the family business, Joseph J. Dragon & Son’s, Inc. She was a homemaker raising five children, spending all of her time she could with them. She was involved with their activities and accomplishments. She made Christmas Eve a special memory in her family’s lives. 

She was especially proud of her Slovenian heritage, making homemade soups and cabbage rolls. Every Wednesday you would find her children at her table eating soup or bringing home take outs from her kitchen. She also enjoyed bowling and playing pinochle and spending time with her family and friends. Most evenings she would walk next door to her special friend “Flo” and have her hair set for the next day. She was a member of St. Joseph Church-Our Lady of Peace Parish and the Ashtabula Elks #208.

She is survived by five children, Joseph J. (Debbie) Dragon Jr. of Ashtabula, David W. (Mary) Dragon of Saybrook Township, Dianne R. (Scott) Johnson of Plymouth Township, Agnes J. “A. J.” McCullough of Painesville Township and Douglas J. (Tara) Dragon of North Kingsville; eight grandchildren, Laura (Jordan) Boutilier, Melanie Dragon, Amanda (Brian) Kosakowski, Mallory (Jake) Hatmaker, Kevin Johnson, Jake McCullough and Mitchell and Dalton Dragon; two step-grandchildren, Bria and Nick Johnson; and a great-granddaughter, Kendyl Lindsay Boutilier.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Joseph in 1997; a granddaughter, Lindsay Marie Dragon in 1980; two brothers, Joseph and Lawrence Svec Sr.; a twin sister, Ruth Savel; and an infant sister.
